Slaying the Dragon: Mythmaking in the Biblical Tradition Paperback - 1992

by Bernard F. Batto

"Batto argues persuasively that biblical authors, like other ancient Near Eastern authors, used mythic traditions in composing their new syntheses. . . . His bold argument is impressive".--Richard J. Clifford, Professor of Old Testament, Weston School of Theology, Cambridge, Massachusetts.


From the publisher

In Slaying the Dragon: Mythmaking in the Biblical Tradition, Bernard Batto argues that biblical authors, like other ancient Near East authors, used mythic traditions in composing their works. Batto joins massive evidence with masterful argument to show that myth actually lies at the heart of the theological enterprise of the biblical authors. Slaying the Dragon is sure to provoke dicussion on the theological relevance of myth in the biblical tradition.
